After watching me work on the baby's quilt for so long (which by the way is FINISHED, I just need to take pictures), Sawyer proclaimed to me yesterday that he wanted me to make him a quilt with blue, green, yellow and orange in it. I started digging through my scraps and some fabric I've had laying around for at least two years caught my eye. I have this great Alexander Henry states and capitals fabric, as well as this map panel. I knew instantly I wanted to make him a quilt of the 50 states.
I was originally going to just do the panel on the front and the AH fabric on the back, but the cut I had was smaller than the panel. So instead, I decided to fussy cut each state and make a block to feature each one. Then I'll put the panel on the back. I absolutely LOVE how they are turning out so far. The blocks are so fun to make, too, since they're all different.
Here are a few of the blocks so far:
I have all 50 states cut out, although I'm not sure if they will all make it onto the quilt. I'm going to try though.
